3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 6/11/14 from a capped 500mL bottle purchased at Bangor Wine and Cheese. Pours clear, very dark ruby red with a thin off-white head that leaves a thin collar. The nose is honeyed with blackberry, a hint of spicy clove, and just a touch of caramelized orange peel. The flavor is nicely dry, with the blackberry, clove, and lightly bitter orange peel all blending nicely with the honey. The body is medium with average, fizzy carbonation and a long finish that encompasses all of the above.

Blackberry sets this one off, along with the orange. Very nice wish I could get it locally so I could enjoy it whilst at the house...

Brought this one to Kramers christmas party. Beautiful ruby red color really sets up the amazing aroma. Tons of berries up front with the clove, orange zest and honey sweetness bringing up the rear. Taste is pretty much the same with tons of fresh picked juicy berries and clove dominating with some sugary sweetness rounding it all out. Overall one of the better national releases from these guys. I will have to grab a few more next time.

If you like mulled red wines, spicy ciders, or strong Chai tea, and have never found a beer that really appealed to you, do yourself a damn favor and splurge on this. You?ll be so glad you did.Side Note: Perfect for Halloween parties and World of Darkness LARPs. This looks like prop blood and tastes a lot better.

This poured a dark red to purple with a pinkish head. Aroma was of blackberries, light honey and some spice. Flavor similar, more blackberry forward, pushing on the lines of alcopop but refreshing.
